Passport warning after family forced to miss £3,000 holiday due to confusing rule

The Sun says a FAMILY was forced to miss their £3,000 holiday to Portugal after making an easy passport mistake.

Mum Nina Gurd was unable to board her flight with her husband John and three sons Jack, Harry and Charlie after being told her passport was not valid, despite being in date.

Her passport, which was issued in May 2012, was due to expire next month.

However, she had an additional nine months on it, which pre-Brexit could be rolled over from previous documents, which meant the expiry date was February 2023.

But new rules no longer allow those months to be used – meaning her passport had just one month left on it.
